haiku retrospective lxiii

solstice flu
chills chasing the moon
through the skylight

fevered child's brow ~
the scent of slate rock
baking in the sun

flu season ~
tea so tasteless
i might as well drink hay

flu season ~
the laughing four-year-old starts coughing

cough medicine ~
the flowing fountain on the hearth

25 December 1999
